The assessment will involve speaking to the service user about how they are, what is going well, and what they might be finding difficult (including their thoughts and behaviours around eating). It is common to complete physical health checks during these assessments such as monitoring weight. This is also an opportunity to support the family and carer providing research, support and education to help support loved ones. Following this assessment, referrals will be made to your GP, a written report of the assessment and a follow up care plan created.

The successful applicant must be a Qualified Nurse currently registered with the NMC and have recent experience working within Mental Health and/or Eating Disorder Services Services. The applicant must hold a full UK driving license and have a car suitable for work use.
